Behind The Lens

Location
This was captured in Johnston Canyon in Banff National Park Alberta Canada.
Time
Myself and the Ice climbers meet up in the parking lot of Johnston Canyon in the morning then a short hike up the snow and ice covered trail. I took a bit longer as I was taking photos along the way as there is more than one frozen waterfall along the way. The Ice climbers went to the upper falls to set up there gear.
Lighting
As the upper falls area is some what narrow and being winter time the sun doesn't fully hit the frozen waterfalls. knowing this we still wanted to get to the falls ignorer to beat the rush of tourist to the area as it is a popular area all year around. Having indirect sun and a partially cloudy day we had once filtered sun for shooting the ice climbers.
Equipment
Nikon NIKON D300 LENS 70-300mm ISO 200 FOCAL LENGTH 165.0 mm APERTURE f/8 EXPOSURE TIME 0.00156s (1/640. Location upper viewing area looking down on the ice climbers.
Inspiration
The ice climbers and I are friends and we thought it would be a good idea to get some photos of the action.
Editing
I can't remember all what I did in post but what I can remember is using the On One photo suite and Light Room to do all adjustments like sharpening contrast and I probably boosted to colour a bit to bring out the natural colour of the ice as the colour changed depending on if the sun was out and hitting the ice or if the sun was being the clouds.
In my camera bag
I run with Nikon gear at the time of the photo it was a Nikon D300 and a 70-300 mm lens my kit has grown much from then to include a D600 D810 and a vintage Pentax 6x7 medium format film. along with some lenses like Tamron 15-30 Nikon 24-70 2.8 70-200 2.8 and more along with Tripod, Format Hitech Filters,etc
Feedback
My advice for you is to get out and shoot shoot shoot. Keep all of your photos and look at the good, bad & the ugly then try to figure out what made the shot good,bad or ugly this should help with your learning curve. Ha I still take some shots that suck and I still look at them and try to understand where I went wrong and what I need to do better net time.
